It describes key activities to be performed as well as the inputs, outputs (deliverables) and roles involved with each. It identifies key integration points with related disciplines. The course also provides deep dives on key topics such as developing target architectures and strategic roadmaps, and integrating architecture across the organization.

The course describes typical scenarios for applying Business Architecture and the process variation required. It provides scenario-based case studies and an opportunity for hands-on application. This course also describes tips for creating a playbook within an organization.
